    For those of us who do not use the extended features of XPE or the autoHelp options, is there any chance of someone utlining the settings required to obtain the maximum functionality in a limited WinPE / BartPE setup?

    I have tried a few of the different posts, but none of them are as functional as the posts cliam. In some cases, I can see my HDD. In others, I can't. Some claim to allow exploring image, other don't.

    Is there a reason for the limitations being placed on the plugin?

    I am trying to find a way for me to use BartPE functionality as a way of swaying prespective customers, but until then, BartPE + Ghost seems a better option for desktop backups. :(

    I am a big fan of TrueImage and look forward to a fully functional PE option being made available.

    Thanks.

    It's not the plugin (in the usual sense) that you need. You need the real plugin (which includes special True Image files modified from build 791). Once you buy the product and register with Acronis, you can get them to provide the real plugin. This does everthing except explore images. (It also is not intended to manage the Secure Zone)

    I recently obtained the updated plugin.

    After ripping everything else out of my PE cd, I think it is working in the (limited) method expected. However, I am unable to add it to my current CD. This means I have NO additional MassStorage drivers installed and NO additional network drivers. This means I now have to go through and recompile my CD bit by bit. FWIW, I don't normally use BartPE and opt to add the functionality using .reg files and a few custom scripts.

    That said, is there any difference between the compatability of the TI versions (Workstation vs Server vs Standard) ? I was hoping to get to a point where I could use a common BartPE / WinPE base and simply update the license details for each client.

    Since BartPE / WinPE has become such a key tool, I would hope that evetually there would not be a lose of functionality when using it in conjunction with Acronis products.

    Have a look at this:

    Ultimate Boot CD for Windows

    If nothing else you can use the driver pack to get your drivers back, but True Image works with the whole thing from this site.

    AFAIK the workstation and enterprise server plugins are non-working at this point, however they do have the explore function (non-working also).
